I feel like I am in those who have not understood :(

Do I have to understand then that my (long) today post about subject
identification was off-topic and will not even be discussed?

My suggestion was that Part 1 should let the door open to other subject
identification mechanisms than the particular ones defined in Part 2
(TMDM). Is that off-scope?

The passage I commented in Part 1 is found nowhere in TMDM as far as I can
tell. So what could I comment on?
